It all looks good so far but my personal opinion is that the models need a bit more. The banner is showing the basecoat through the paint so it needs another layer of paint I think. But even more so, all the models need more shading. There are no darker areas in the recesses to make the model stand out more, nor are they highlights on the extreme edges which will do the same thing. I would suggest adding the next colour up the chart or a very small amount of white to the paint being used and add some highlights to the edges to make them pop.

as for the banner i was happy for darker bits to show through as its like the folds.

as far as the models i stuggle with the highlighting side of things so i have not worried to much, however i will keep trying. i am looking at the moment for a standard im happy with so i can use them for gaming. maybe in the future i can to do some of the more advanced stuff.

at the mo im just not good enough!!!!!
